I love Christmas but I am so tired of seeing Christmas projects. This next card has a lot of new product from the Spring Catalog in it. I used the Oval Framelits, the Primrose Petals Core-dinations Paper, The new Honeycomb Embossing Folder and new Designer Series Paper called Print Poetry. I think the 2013/2014 In Colors are some of my favorites. I am going to miss these when they retire. Good thing we still have another year and a half before they go.
Those of you that know me pretty well, know I am a clean and simple stamper. I am not into the vintage look and whenever I try, I am a complete failure at it. All I can do it CASE (Copy and Share Everything).
In the new Occasions Catalog that comes out in January, there are Soda Pop Tops. What on earth would you do with Soda Pop Tops? Well, to be honest, I got them in a special package from Stampin Up (which by the way, is a perk of being a Stampin Up Demonstrator. Ask me if you are interested!). So I sat at my stampin desk and stared that this package of Soda Pop Tops for a very, very long time. I just could not wrap my brain around them.
We had another great time at our October Club meeting. We welcomed back Ann from her summer hiatus on the river. The first card we made used a lot of items from the Holiday Catalog. The stamp set is called Friendship Preserves. We first stamped the Thanks a Bunch stamp from this set in Cherry Cobbler and then cut it out using the new Window Framelits. We then took the larger sized Window Framelits and cut a piece of Crumb Cake card stock. We then used the new Paper Piercing template also in the Holiday Catalog. We then embossed a piece of the new Core’dinations card stock in Cherry Cobbler with a folder in the Delicate Designs set and lightly sanded it. I love the look of this new paper. It adds a lot of dimension to the projects. We finished off the card using Seam Binding ribbon in Crumb Cake. I love this ribbon because it is so soft and easy to use.. It comes in a bunch of different colors. The ribbon is on page 172 of the main catalog.
The next card we made was for Thanksgiving using an older set called Day of Gratitude. It has some beautiful stamps in that set, including a leaf, acorn and a larger background stamp. The Designer Series Paper we used is called Comfort Cafe and is one of my favorite papers for fall. The colors used are Very Vanilla, Cajun Craze and Soft Suede.
